*-Jam is missing all but last 56 seconds
+- PA crackle at the beginning
First several minutes of Jam are missing. Tickets said 8 PM, they started at 7:45. I was running last minute "errands" when the show started. First few seconds are faded in to avoid the jarring record start.
Set I is 80:20. If you can overburn 20 seconds the entire set fits on one CD.

Front Row Quality
Had seats in the front row of the balcony and made it all the way to stage- front & center. Ovens is a great venue with killer acoustics. The whole second set was a blast, and this recording captures the moment with stunning clarity. Download and enjoy! Thanks to RobertNC for making it happen.

A Great Night in Charlotte
I had to remind a lot of people at the show of one of the best bumper stickers I've seen in the past 10 years. It said: "Who is Steve Kimock and why does he keep blowing my mind?" Being a fan of Zero/Martin Fierro and SKB I was super stoked to hear that SK was filling in for the Mark. My best to Mark and his family for a quick recovery.
The Band was very tight and Kimock brought little tingles up and down my spine and neck as he strutted right on through classics such as Dark Star,Help>slip and China>Rider.
Lots of Dylan that night. The Hard Rain was great and Bobby sounded really clear. For me, the high point was the Tequila>Silvio>tequila>Silvio, a great Dead/Dylan classic with lyrics provided by the one and only Robert Hunter. I thought the days of Silvio were long gone.
The place was a stinky smoke fest all of 2nd set with no hassles from house security or bacon.
Two more things:
Its nice not to be the oldest person at a show..
Its nice to know there's still a little real magic.
This show gets four stars for a lot of reasons: classic songs,front row, great pictures, great smoke,great friends=Great Times!!!
BIG,HUGE,HAPPY THANKS TO ALL INVOLVED WITH INTERNET ARCHIVE!!! YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH WE LOVE YOU ALL!!!!
KEEP 'EM COMING

QUINN THE ESKIMO!
I was drawn to this recording by the Quinn and the Gloria encore.
...sprinkling more obscure offerings makes for a fun show, imo. For this show, the band and the audience seem to be enjoying each other...especially during Quinn and Gloria.
Bobby really seems to be mixing it up on this tour...bravo, "Dog."
Great sound on the recording...we are being spoiled again! Thanks, (((R Graham)))!

This is my favorite AUD of this Ratdog tour with Steve Kimock on the archive. It just sounds so full and you get the perfect level of audience noise to make it really seem like you are there. Steve is on fire all night long! Turn your bass up and don't miss out on the bombs this guy drops. I love his fretless tone. This Josephine ROCKS!
Ratdog is playing better than ever right now. Thanks to all who made this available. Peace out.
